The Life Cycle of a Worker's Comp Claim

Gain a better understanding of the process of a workers' compensation claim and how to address workplace injuries before the can occur.

The goal of this topic is to provide an overview of workers' compensation systems and to describe the process by which a claim unfolds following a workplace injury. The material will address the basis of these systems, the process following a workplace injury, and the life of a resulting claim. It will also discuss strategies to reduce injuries and minimize claims, both prior to and following an injury. It will also identify other employment law concerns that often arise following an injury and during the management of the claim. The information will strive to assist in reducing premium costs, benefit exposure, and helping ensure the safety of employees.
